It is worth speaking to a pharmacist and trying some antihistamines if you think it might be pollen. I am sensitive to pollen, just with my asthma, not hayfever and if I don't take an antihistamine my ventolin stops working.


Hello Lolo,

Im new to the forum and Asthma only diagnosed week and half ago and ive had three attacks that i can remember but my point is i dont know what my trigger is as im a newbie to the Asthma ranks but if it helps im a postman twice a week and the pollen has been high so my doctors have told me to take 2 anti hystamine tabs a day to be on the safe side as i have a runny nose and watery eys wehn out delivering so maybe it could help.
